Removing water from fruits and vegetables is a well-known method of preserving food and reducing storage space. If you’re planning on oven drying or dehydrating your favorite veggies or fruits, make sure you buy them at your local farmers market during peak season, harvest time for tomatoes is generally from the third week of July until early October. The end result is intensely flavored, sweet veggies and fruits that are nutrient-packed and, in the case of tomatoes, can add depth and a summery taste to your salads, sandwiches, dressings and pasta dishes!
